The map would show you a marker which you can use to select the exact place where you wanted to add a location or business of yours. The map would have the adjacent boundaries, roads and buildings for you to get a better idea of what place you exactly are selecting.

Add Place Marker

Once the place is selected, you may select the category, and enter the name of the place, i.e. the name of the business, school, hospital etc. Hit Continue after entering the details.

Select Category and Enter Name

Once the basic details are entered, you may enter the other details like Address, the phone number, website, timings and a few other details based on the business. For example, if it is a hospital or a clinic, you may add the particular timings of the clinic and the description about the services offered.

Enter Address Details Google Map Maker

After entering everything, you can save and the Google Map Maker would search for the duplicates of the same. If any of them are found, you will be notified about the same and if its the old one you want to select, there is a pop-up notification that appears – Your current edit will be discarded. Your changes will be applied to the selected duplicate and presented again for confirmation. If you are sure that this is the first time you are adding the business to Google maps, select the option “This is not a duplicate”.

After the approval, below is how the location appears on the Google Map.
